------------------- Rules ------------
For all phases of the event the Tournament Code of Conduct will apply.
Special rules will apply to the following:
All matches that involve the RNG map generator are to be "TOURNEY" settings. Both players may use ONE roll each if the map that is generated is deemed unfit. Example settings for the RNG.
Any ties that happen at the end of a group stage will be resolved as follows: 2-way tie results in a BO1; 3-way tie will get decided by opponent strength victories, and if necessary, a condensed mini round robin.
Standard map and faction veto system applies.
-------- Tournament Details ---------
December 11th: 14 UTC: Group Stage, all 16 players participate in a standard, 4 Group Format
Day 1 of the event will be the lengthiest, involving a full, Group Stage round-robin format. Groups have been determined via a snake draft system by placement of total points acquired throughout the year for the 1st thru 12th seed, and 13th thru 16th by placement in the Qualifier event.
Each group will receive its own 15 map pool, follow the same map veto process (3 vetoes per player) to reduce to 9 maps, with faction vetoes. The top 2-performing players in each group will advance to the final stage, playoffs RO8 which will take place a week later.
SPECIAL RULES FOR THE GROUP STAGE
December 18th: 15 UTC Playoffs, RO8 BO5 and Semi-Finals BO5
The second day of the event will consist of the initial RO8 with 4 BO5 matchups taking place simultaneously in a single-elimination format. The victors of these matches will move on to the semi-finals, a RO4 set of 2 BO5s to determine the top 4 places, giving way to the Bronze and Champion matchups.
A new pool will be used by all players, map, faction veto system.
December 19th: 15 UTC Finale, Bronze & Champion Match BO7
The final day of the Official Tournament will have 4 players left. These 4 players will be playing a single BO7 each to decide placements. The two competing for first will be the victors of Part II. Both of these rounds will consist of the same 15 map pool and each player will be given 3 vetoes at the start. Each player will pick a map from the 9 maps left with the Bottom Seed picking first and also vetoing first. If the games come down to a 3-3, then the players will use a final veto with the Bottom Seed vetoing first to bring the 3 maps left down to 1. They will then play that last map.
Should a player be unable to play the event a substitution will be made. This will come to the next-highest point accumulation. Based on the point tracker, the 6 in line subs are as follows:
